My S2 will be working just fine and then I turn it off and when I turn it back on the top display has a F-- on it. (which according to the book means "a non-CPU lens is attached or lens is not attached.) Sometimes I can just turn it off and back on and it is ready to go and other times it takes a while.
Other than turning it on and off I don't change anything (lens, batteries, etc). Do you need to clean the sensors on the camera and/or lens at any point in the life of the camera?
Well, it looks that FE message means that the camera is confused. I saw this message when I put a non-D lens and automatic TTL flash (which does require D lens to measure a distance). Usually putting the camera (or flash in my case) into manual mode got rid of the error.

The Error E18 is quite a havoc on these Canon cameras. Here is a blog with great info on it: E18 Blog
Do not force your lens back into place and don't try and jiggle it either, you will be further damaging other pieces.
This camera is very powerful and the repair is well worth it. Teleplan Camera Repair provides a quote online with the cost clearly displayed.
I have an aqualite field ranger watch too. I lost the information but I found another notice for another watch and I was able to set the TIME as well as the alarm. I am not despairing as to one day set the date correctly! ;-)
The instructions I found are for "LIFELONG Chrono Alarm Sport watch" from Hanig & Company. The watch this particular instructions comes from has a rectangle LCD display that only takes the center of the dial, and only 3 buttons for the functions.
Aqualite has 4 buttons, but one of them is only for lighting the dial only, therefore if we use the 3 other buttons the same way they are described in this manual, it will work.
Aqualite has 4 buttons: 1) top right (we will call it S1 like this manual does) 2) bottom right (this will be S2) 3) bottom left (this will be S3)
As I said the number 4) (top left) is only for light and we will forget it since it is not needed to set our watch.

the lithium batteries power the flash and some of the metering. But if they drop below a certain power, the camera dies.
The F33 error is probably the accidental movement of the aperture ring on the lense. If you get the error, check the aperture ring is set.
Try removing the lens, the memory card, and the lithium batteries. With freshly charged AA batteries, turn the camera on. If it comes on without the "err" message in that case, your problem lies with the memory card, the lens, or the lithium batteries. Turn off the camera and add these things until you encounter the problem again.
For a lens, check to make sure the electronic contacts are clean and that the lens gets fully twisted into place, and that if there is an aperture lock, that the aperture is set to the smallest possible aperture (22 or 16, usually).
For the memory card, reformat it elsewhere if it is causing problems. The Fuji S2 is notorious for being picky about memory cards.
Lithium batteries that are slightly run-down can cause all sorts of issues. Your S2 doesn't need to use lithium batteries, except for the built-in flash. You can add an extra AA battery pack to replace the lithium batteries, and that will improve the camera's reliability.
